Associate Professor of Mathematics and Chair, Department of Mathematics & Computer Science

Ph.D. in Mathematics, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee - Specialization: Representation Theory

Location: Janet Ayers Academic Center 4029



I am most passionate about challenging my students to better themselves; in my class, we will be accountable to each other in our efforts to push our knowledge and understanding.

I received my Ph.D. from University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and did my dissertation work in representation theory – mainly focusing on Clifford and Lie algebras and superalgebras.   Before going to UWM, I received my B.A. from Carthage College in Kenosha, WI, and I also spent time teaching at the secondary level.  Professionally I am an active member of the Mathematical Association of America (MAA) and a Project NExT (New Experiences in Teaching) Fellow. 

Although my primary expertise is with noncommutative algebras, I have great interest in projects that bring together multiple disciplines (other branches of mathematics, physics, computer science, and sociology).  On the pedagogy side of my research interests, I study teaching methods that most effectively build conceptual understanding and mathematical confidence.
